8:44 am
and engineering and we could use that now and we don't have it. let's go over to the discussion table! can we talk about this? >> yes, the weather. >> it is a science, too. >> absolutely. temperatures are in the 50s in the bay area. 54 degrees in santa rosa. san jose is 61 degrees. patchy fog and drizzle you can see how foggy it is. there is your shot. a foggy start to sunday. that is the view from the transamerica pyramid. sunshine, warm and near 90 degrees inland by midweek. we will, however, have to dispense with this persistent marine layer as low pressure moves in and high pressure weakens a bit. as this trough moves in over california, we will see high cloud this is afternoon and evening making for a pretty sunset when the low clouds clear. fog and sun. temperatures warm into the mid 70s inless than. cool and overcast for much of the bay area. temperatures in the mid 50s
8:45 am
today. futurecast bear this is out. you can see the low clouds pulling back to the shore by midday and movie back in toward sunset. there are the high clouds coming in. tomorrow morning we will be talking fog and low clouds again during the cbs morning news. mostly sunny skies for the area on monday. if you are heading out of san francisco for monday, a high of 72 at the airport. new york is thunderstorms and 72. pinpoint forecast for the bay area, in the south bay morgan hill comes in at 80 degrees. mountain view at 74. campbell 76. sunny veil 74 and 76 in antioch and 82 at brentwood. pleasant hill is 80. livermore is 80. pleasanton is nice and mid 70s. in the north bay santa rose starts with fog, ends with 77. oakland 72 degrees today.

8:47 am
willy brown and the chairman of the republican party. here it is. >> people are dependant because they don't like bi- partisanship. joe biden was way to partisan, laughing, smearing. that doesn't help. the debate has been about his attitude and all the gasps he made like i didn't vote for it or the lies he told. >> i think joe biden had to demonstrate clearly that he was superior on the knowledge side with reference to international relations. he did so. as a matter of fact mr. reince got smaller and -- ryan got smaller and smaller at the person conducting the interview or being the moderator asked questions. it was clear that joe biden was far superior to paul ryan. >> i may take away in talking to people subsequent to it, it reinforced what you felt going in. if you were inclined to go democratic you thought you got a bolster. if you were inclined to go
8:48 am
republican you said ryan held his own. so, the focus will be tuesday night before that we go to the top of the ticket. you invited mayor brown and mitt romney to come in swinging and knock him off his game. he did that. >> yes. he has to continue that process, demonstrate he was superior in the delivery system in the first debate mr. obama has to crawl out of a very deep hole. >> but mitt romney will be facing a talent hall rather than the structured debate setting. he is not very good on his feet. >> well, we will see. i don't know about that. he was go on his feet for 90 minutes. i agree with the mayor. he has to continue moving ahead. he shouldn't it is on it and get more specific in certain areas, talk about the keystone and what not. he should have answers to everything that was said the last time, new answers -- not
8:49 am
new but emphasize different -- . >> tuesday's debate is rather than being one on the last debate so tied up in numbers and in the weeds as far as tax and deficits. i don't think the public understood what they were saying but paying attention to how they were saying it. this debate they could be asked about immigration, gay marriage and a whole variety of issue that is could take a different attack. >> maybe, but he has to push forward and have answers for those things. obama is ready for the last debate now. he is to forge ahead like the mayor says and make obama react to the new issues. >> what does the president have to do? >> he has to show he has the skills and ability to engage in an interchange with a person who is really pressing and pressing hard anatases do so in a presidential way, not just the new theory way. >> what was lacking you thought
8:50 am
in his presidential prep performance last time? >> energy, knowledge, interest -- he looked board bored completely. he looked indifferent. he didn't respond to the missed allegations made by mr. romney. he has to be able to do all of that in a setting while at the same time maintaining his superior personal relationships with the people. >> well, it reminded me of looking at the watch. didn't seem like he wanted to be there or that was important enough. that was a big first impression for people. how do you feel about our problems today. so, when he goes into this new town hall setting, he has to do what the mayor says. he has to directly relate to the person answering the question and be able to respond to whatever romney says. we will see if he can do that. i am confident romney will. >> on both debates you get around town from doormen to millionaires, you get around quite a bit. and you as well.
8:51 am
with people's reactions when asked about the debates, was it on substance or on style. >> on style was the first item on each one of the person's responses. they didn't talk about whether or not there was anything to do with medicare. they didn't talk about foreign policy. they talked about style, how he looked and delivered. >> each time we talked about this three or four time, me and the mayor, we wondered whether they realized there were split screen, that being obama. it matters a lot how you appear to people. not only good, bad or indifferent, but the truth of the matter people want to like the person they are voting for and think the person likes them. quite frankly the president didn't do well at that and i don't think biden did, either. they want to know if you can work together with people, not smear at them. >> biden's duty and responsibility was a wee bit different. >> that is true.
8:52 am
>> the fate of the democratic party was so down. biden needed to uplift them and he did so. >> i am surprised at the heavy emphasis on foreign policy in this debate, as well. they started out with it talking about benghazi and it put the vice president at a disadvantage in a lot of times you lead off with the news of the day. there was a congressional hearing going on and the benghazi controversy. so, yes, and that is what you put on the defense in a debate. that is in nature of news when you are in the office. you don't plan the news. it happens around you. but some people put a lot of work into planning this morning, right? >> yes. thousands of women on the run. when we come back, we are talking about the cause that has these athletes doing a half marathon as we speak. we will be right back.

9:02 am
and this is tape from earlier as he is preparing for what is going to be a sky dive that is supposed to break the sound barrier. bell the first guy to ever do this. >> he is going up in the balloon, pumping up the balloon that will take him 26- miles above roswell, new mexico. he is in the space suit because he is going to try to break the sound barrier and do the height and speed as he drops down the parachute. >> it will take about three hours to get to the height he is going for, 23-miles in the air. then the defense will begin -- decent will begin. this will be the fastest, furtherrest free fall. >> the balloon taking him up, the distance is 55 stories between him and the capsule. that is rather amazing.
9:03 am
he will drop. he says if he has successful on this, it will with his final chute. >> i could be that being final. he will be so high there will be no oxygen in the air. this has been a long time coming. they have been planning for this for some time as you can see. we will continue to monitor it for you. >> that is good. meanwhile back on planet earth -- . >> yes, equally as exciting or mother so if we may -- more so if we may say, game one of the giants taking on the st. louis cardinals at at&t park. yesterday they held separate practice sessions on field. bees around the stadium are -- businesses around the stadium are anticipating a uptick in customer, similar to what they saw two years ago and fans say it is a good feeling all around town. >> it does great things for customers. if they can do what they did in cincinnati and bring it home, they will have hopefully a good
9:04 am
seven games ahead of them, hopefully not 7. >> we will see how many games we need to beat them. games one and two will be played in san francisco and also games six and seven if necessary. the game gets under way at 5:15 and tomorrow's game at 5:07. the news isn't as good in san jose, because it could be awhile longer before the city gets any of the good money that may come from another nhl season. the player lockout is nearly a- month-old, and that means no short games. the negotiations between the league and player's association are expected to start up tuesday. while both sides negotiated last week, they only focused on secondary issues like drug testing and not on the key question of how to divide up revenue for the league. the nhl canceled all games until october 24th, including the entire pre-season as well as the first three games of regular play. well, a couple in clayton and their two cats managed to

[ laughing ] >> yes, tuesday president obama and mitt romney facing off in a second of three debates. >> and the stakes are high with national polls showing the race is essentially tied. >> but how accurate are the polls in the first place?
9:14 am
with we have more. >> no, i don't buy the polls. i never did when i served in public office. i had the polls for instructional purposes but not the decide. they gave me an idea on how i could move things a little bit, but not win or lose. >> do you get a feeling in this presidential campaign that it is being poll driven, that they are testing the questions and there and testing the positions out there and trying to deliver them now? >> well, look, campaigns do that all the time. i look at poll to see trends. if polls move in a decided direction i believe like we have now i believe there is that direction. i think most of the polls prior to the last debate used the 2008 turnout model for democrats and republicans. this race will be much more even. >> do you think so? >> when it come to the turnout. >> i think the democrats will win or lose on the basis of the
9:15 am
turnout. i don't think the republican message being send by romney and ryan attracts daks as such democrats as such, but they energize republicans of young belief. obama and his administration has not energized their constituency. biden's performance was playing to the constituency. they need to energize the constituency, not persuade new voters. >> so, that is what we have seen in the last couple of elections. you start out with america sharply divided, democrats and republicans, and it becomes a question of turning out your sorrow vote and getting a few undecided to go in your category, right? >> yes. we have this major division. the winner of this race is the person who kips enough independents in swing state that is he has a plan to move
9:16 am
forward. not an ideology to move forward, but a practical solution to people's lives. if you have gas prices, you build keystone or not and that is how romney will win it. >> obama has a little advantage, however, because the new voters are there. in the last cycle, 2008, obama turned out vote -- voters turned out in greater numbers among latino, african- americans, among young people more than than they ever had before. it was phenominal what occurred. he need to reenergize that group. he needs to reignite that group and he would not have to worry about anything else if he could do that. >> do you get the feel that the campaigns are geared toward that? >> well, i think right now where you see romney-reince are ryan are in good -- romney-ryan are in good shape.
9:17 am
romney now need to push ahead and forge ahead. he has to provide additional solutions. what reagan did down the stretch to win, he got more specifics. if romney it is on the lead and plays roosevelt like obama did in the last debate taking the punches and hoping he can emerge, that would be a big mistake. >> but if you say what you can do, that can bring in the attack, right, mayor brown? >> that is true but he has to do it. >> that didn't fuel the other side, but in this case it is really about whether or not the obama operation which was incredibly superior in 2008, the ground campaign by the obama operation was unbelievable. >> i remember that. >> if they can do that again it won't matter what romney does. it won't matter what message comes out. it will be that group of people that went from door to door, starting an ending in new york and winning for obama.
9:18 am
>> if they continue to have this rally, teleprompter, fundraiser troops they have where it is all about money and tv, you don't think it could go the other way? >> unless there is a hid andres iniesta infrastructure on the grass roots side that is really going on -- i don't current will you see it. you can best see it, though, in nevada and colorado, where it is in fact needed. they are doing okay on that ground operation in ohio. >> this will be one lost on the ground? >> it usually is, but it is the intensity aspect for the democrats because the republicans are far more into this race. >> intensity gap for the democrats and information gap for the republicans. >> you lack intensity and you lack specifics, okay. [ laughing ] >> look, he got ahead being specific in the last debate and he has to keep that momentum up. >> all right. well, it will be interesting. it will be tuesday night here on cbs 5. >> still to come, a focus on the national political scene away from the presidential
9:19 am
race. >> that is right. we will take a look at some insight into the all important congressional races, which actually have as much to do with how with president runs washington. and a change in power in house and senate? >> and ahead, students with remarkable accomplishments and what they are getting at a reward. we will be right back. on the best brand-name mattress sets. get your best rest ever from sleep train. ♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪ we call this our mission.mpany, green toys teaches children that if i have a milk jug and i stick it in the recycling bin it can turn into something new. chase allows us to buy capital equipment to be able to manufacture in the states to the scale we need to be a global company. with a little luck green toys could be the next great american brand.
